Rockland State of The County Address

Rockland County Executive Ed Day delivered his State of the County address this week, speaking about the future of the economy, housing safety, and business plans. Presenting to the Legislature and other county officials, Day stated that the economy is improving and the unemployment rate of 3.8% represents that, in part thanks to his administration’s work to consolidate local government. Day also spoke about the Summit Park Hospital, which closed at the end of 2015, after a $32 million sale fell through. In his proposals the County Executive recommended turning the empty buildings into a center that will house Health and Human Services. Day’s address also referred to the continuation of the Rockland Codes Initiative, which will add to the already existing regulations against illegal housing, by having properties with more than three renters register with the county. Along with continuing to tackle the county’s fiscal issues, including fighting welfare fraud, Rockland will be putting more money into tourism to attract new visitors.
